This new service offers businesses a unique cloud ecosystem as a managed service, which also features a self-service portal that boasts a simple interface, the ability to record real time statistics, a single repository of billing information, simplified remote management and a secure connection.

Working with stakeholders such as MDeC, Maxis also plans to establish joint programs, which will promote the adoption of cloud computing services for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and provide them with a holistic solution.

Thanks to Maxis’ Business Fibre Internet network, users will also be able to connect to the new cloud service with speeds of 4 Mbps, 8 Mbps or 16 Mbps. With the addition of the 100G optical coherent network solution, Maxis will now be able to address the growing data consumption of smartphones, tablets, modems and fibre-to-the-premises services.

“Today’s launch of Maxis Cloud is designed to support the growing need of Malaysian businesses, and help them operate at the next strategic level. With Infrastructure-as-a-Service, we give businesses our capacity for secure, pay-per-use access to computing power, information and content from any screen.
